After the Funeral (Poirot)
After the Funeral (Poirot)
Price: 3.85

4.0 out of 5 stars A really good vintage Poirot, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this novel. Although I thought that Cora had been impersonated at the funeral, I had no idea why until the end.


Artists in Crime (The Ngaio Marsh Collection)
Artists in Crime (The Ngaio Marsh Collection)
Price: 5.49

3.0 out of 5 stars A rather bizarre crime story, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this novel quite difficult to read and very dated in its attitude to artists, ordinary working people and non-Brits. I hope that the others by Marsh that I have on my Kindle will be more enjoyable


Wycliffe and the Four Jacks

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book set in a lovely part of Cornwall, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this Wycliffe murder story, and although I guessed correctly about the change of identity of one of the main charactersI had no idea who did the murders, how or why until the end. Just what I like.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book wasn't what I was expecting; no Poirot or Marples! But it held my attention and the plot was good and well sustained. so a good read

Interesting picture of life at the end of WW2, mixed in with the suspense of a well-written detective story. Wonderful and unexpected ending. Highly recommended for people who like traditional whodunnits!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating story with an unexpected ending, 25 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this mystery by Josephine Tey. I thought that the characters were well-drawn, and I like Alan Grant's way of solving mysteries. I'm only sorry that Miss Tey didn't write more books.
